Secret World - Funcom

Recently the speed of connection to the sites and servers for this game have been absolutely horrendous, and by horrendous it ranges from a speed of -- to 896 bytes.
This does not seem to be an issue that just I am experiencing as others have also been experiencing it and on discussions on the forum have been finding that it is mainly just affecting PlusNet users.  Have donr router restarts, flushed DNS and checked to make sure no ports are blocked by the router and all seems well at my end, unless windows firewall does funky blocking things without asking me.
The tracert is:
